Watopia’s Hilly Route was the only loop that existed when Watopia launched. Hilly Route Reverse was later added, but as an event-only route. It’s not hard to ride it outside of events, though – just select “Hilly Route” when you begin, then flip a u-turn!

Route Description

This route begins with an uphill ramp to The Esses. Then it’s through the twisty, rolling Esses and down a straight ramp into the reverse sprint over the JWB bridge.

Take a breather after the sprint as you ride over the cobbles of the Italian Villas, then it’s more rollers and over the 360 bridge and past Hank’s gas station onto the reverse KOM. This is the key attack point of the route.

The timed KOM segment begins with its steepest section as you climb up and through the giant statues. Then it levels off a bit as it continues upward. Keep your watts up and you may just grab the KOM jersey!

After the climb, it’s a quick descent into downtown Watopia and through the start/finish banner. Ready for another lap?
